There are better ways to manage projects than dividing tasks, delegating and working until it’s done. Thanks to Connie for pointing out my deficiencies in this regard, and to Roberts for providing a clear and simple guide to improvement. Of course, there’s more to it than one book. “Agile” project management means changing objectives as you go, which of course puts a premium on effective communication - another lesson of the recent past. Lots more to learn on this in order to get better use out of time and money.
